Welcome to "Sea Shell Guest Cottage"! Cottage sleeps up to 2 adults and 1 small child age 4 or under.

Escape into a mini-fantasy world in this delightful 650-square-foot guest cottage situated in a quiet residential neighborhood just a one block stroll to downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea. Refurbished in recent years, this fanciful one-bedroom, with its accouterments of mermaids, seashells, starfish and other undersea imagery, offers a perfect vacation respite for up to two adults or two adults and one small child. This is the perfect setting for a romantic getaway, with its sunny, sand-sea-and-sky color scheme, whimsical objects d'art and sumptuous bath and bed linens.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary wine and cheese and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, spa robes and beach gear.

One open, airy room with a vaulted ceiling and skylights comprises the living, dining and kitchen areas. A clean, warm feeling is achieved with wood laminate flooring, a rattan throw rug, and white furnishings that impart a bright, sun-splashed look to the living room, which includes a flat-screen TV. The plush sofa is very comfortable and makes extra sleeping space available for a small child.

The kitchen has granite counter tops and glossy white cabinetry, as well as a small gas range, oven and full refrigerator (no dishwasher). A round white table with four chairs is provided for intimate dining.

You will sleep like a baby on the queen-sized bed with its Sealy Posturepedic extra-plush mattress and ultra soft, luxury linens.
The sofa in the living room could be used to sleep a small child age 4 or under.

The beautiful bathroom, which is tiled throughout, features a granite counter top and step in shower.

A Dutch door in the bedroom leads to a private patio and garden filled with colorful plants that flourish all year round in Carmel's temperate Mediterranean climate. You can dine al fresco at a bistro table and chairs; a gas grill is provided for outdoor cooking. You can access a stacking washer/dryer from the patio.

The cottage is within walking distance of the remarkable selection of shops, boutiques galleries and restaurants in the village of Carmel. Bruno's Market, a gourmet grocery store that is a Carmel trademark, is just a few blocks away. Breathtaking white sand beaches skirted by the Monterey Peninsula's trademark Cypress trees are an ambitious but doable walk. In the car, you can be at Carmel Beach in a matter of a few minutes.

A pathway along the fence-line just outside the guest house door leads to a charming vest-pocket park. Well-behaved dogs are welcome.

The cottage is situated in a completely enclosed and private area behind a main house - also available for rental -- that unit can accommodate 4 adults and 1 child age 12 or under. You can book our 2 bedroom, 1 bath main house (see #3274 on the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website for more information) separately or together with this guest cottage.

Cozy Home with all the Amenities

Overall Comment

The Sea Shell Cottage is cozy but well-equipped with everything you need for a month-long stay. The fenced-in yard was perfect for our little dog, and the patio was comfortable for BBQing on the gas grill. Plenty of cooking implements and pots and pans, and a gas stove and oven for making meals at home when not visiting one of the many wonderful restaurants within walking distance. Removed enough from the main road to be fairly quiet considering the location. Clean and comfortable! A great stay overall!

My husband and I rented this home for a month while we were transitioning to our new home. We absolutely loved our stay! The home is cozy and central and we enjoyed walking our dogs in the town of Carmel, eating at the restaurants and going to the beach/hiking. We will definitely be back :)
